ABC-Z to debut next year!

A press conference was held during ABC-Z’s stage show, ABC Star Theater, that announced that ABC-Z will finally be making their debut. A.B.C.-Z announced that they will be releasind a DVD next year, making it the first time a Johnny’s group has debuted this way.

Congratulations to ABC-Z. I wish I could say I was surprised but it’s been pretty obvious for a while that ABC-Z would be the next group to go. I don’t know much about ABC-Z since I don’t follow Juniors, but I have seen them perform a few times on Shounen Club. They are a pretty solid group and all the member’s seem to be very strong singers. And I’ve started to really like Kawai Fumito after seeing his impressions a few times on Junior Colosseum. I also think it pretty much safe to say that this will be the last older group to debut, since there aren’t really any older groups left. And I doubt the Question? is ever going to debut. Which is sad because I love Igo Akun.
I’m going to handle this debut the same way I did with Kisumai. See what their eventual debut single is like, and see if they are worth following. But I can already tell that I’m probably going to like them more than Kisumai. Just their overall sound is a lot closer to the type of idol music that I like. There are elements in ABCZ that remind me of Arashi.

New idol group to debut in December

It was announced recently that Watanabe Entertainment has created a new idol group named ChocoLe. The group is set to make their debut in December through Avex. Their debut song Milk Chocolate is going to be used as the ending them to the anime Sket Dance.

Avex seems to be busy lately with all the new idol groups signed to their label lately. I’m actually really excited that yet another idol group is making its debut. I hope they are worth following. I can’t really comment on this group beyond that, since there is so little information about them. This post is just more of a heads up to other idol fans.
